Computing at Frant

Intent - Train up a child...

  • AWARENESS - To promote online safety across the school community and for children to know how to be safe online. 
  • To SUPPORT children and to ensure they have exposure of and to experience using office products and a range of software to support their learning and to make sure that they are ready for Secondary School. 
  • To be able to use a range of devices effectively to complete simple tasks (for example; turning the computer on and off correctly - not just holding down the button!


To achieve our intentions, around the school you will see:

  • Parental workshops to help and support at home and at school. 
  • Up to date information sent out to parents.
  • Digital Leaders within school to promote online safety in and around school. 
  • To ensure that the curriculum is progressive and skills are built upon. 
  • Online safety is part of ALL Computing lessons that we teach. 
  • Children have access to and exposure of lots of different software and devices.
  • Technology used across a range of lessons, not just Computing. 


The impact can be measued by:

  • Come to our parent workshops! Details about our next one will be soon, so keep an eye out. 
  • Conversations with the children and regular reminders about how we stay safe online. 
  • Ask your children what they know and talk about online safety at home - you'd be surprised how much they know! 
  • Children are able to access technology and complete tasks - independently. 
  • Children are confident using different devices. 

Purple Mash for Computing

At Frant, we use an online computing scheme, Purple Mash, as the basis for our Computing curriculum. 

The documents below show what each year group will be learning in Computing this year. It is at the class teacher's discretion as to how and when these units are taught, giving them the flexibility to fill in any gaps in children's learning, as well move the children on when they are ready.
